The Best Wedding-Invitations for Less

Wedding-invitations, like everything else about weddings, have a million different options.  There are the formal, informal, casual, theme and semi-formal invites.  There's the beach, Vintage, rustic, traditional, and shimmery invite. All of which range in price from extremely costly to very low cost.

Do It Yourself Wedding-Invitations

Printing your own invitations was at one time not the thing to do if you didn't want to seem cheesy, but with the fine printers we have today, you can print your own and wind up with a great look.

Many printing companies, hobby supply stores and paper suppliers have blank invitations available for you to print yourself.  Believe it or not, even department stores have paper stock and blank invitations that is acceptable.  Using any elegant font, and customizing to your own needs and taste make this a very frugal choice.

You say you don't want the hassle? Let a dependable friend or family member handle it for you. (Preferably one that has some experience with printing cards or invitations.)

Search the web. There are several printers that will print a very low cost, custom invite for you.  You may even find a great deal at a local print shop.  The key here is to shop around and not settle for something you don't really want.  Sometimes it takes a lot of footwork before you stumble upon just the right thing.

Remember that the wording of an invite will carry a tone.  So a wedding invitation should be worded in a way that will go along with the formality or lack there of of your wedding.

Black and White traditionally make an invitation seem elegant and formal.  Dashes of color, or pictures (not clip art) for accent also make it elegant. Since I mentioned clip art, that would be appropriate for a very casual wedding.  

Invitations for theme weddings should try to incorporate that theme.  It could be background pictures, colors, or any design element that would enhance the theme of the wedding.

You see, invitations are as personal as any other part of the wedding.  Think things through.  What do you want to say with the look of the invitation?  Incorporate that message into your invitation. Say it with style!

This is just one more choice that makes your wedding YOUR wedding.
